there are compelling new therapies for helping these allergy sufferers get over their reactions to the allergen that triggers it. It would have been nice if the author did a bit more homework. If you google "strategies for overcoming food allergies" there are many articles on this topic and the therapies involved

Some allergies are indeed LIFE AND DEATH, and to 'get over their reactions' is NOT what a parent of a child with allergies can do easily. Mine allergy kid is now 34. His biggest was dye in the food. At his age now, his allergies have deminished, but does not go looking for a reaction, just to play Russian roulette. If you have to have 911 for your child's reaction, you know not to mess with other people's advice, but follow the specialists orders. I lived 1.5 blocks from the hospital. And that was not close enough. When your child can't breath, THEY CAN'T BREATH. Even with my other children AND the grandchildren now, we READ all labels and know what we are using. Did you know even some cooking oils, even tho not peanut oriented, have a genetic connection to peanuts, and could create a reaction? Not on the labels!
